We’re Looking to Grow our Team!

Opportunities to join our small, close knit team at made590 don’t pop up very often! We are looking to grow our team with two separate positions looking to be filled within our dynamic business!

Design Role

The first role we are looking to fill is that of a Junior to Intermediate Graphic designer.

The graphic design role is for 1 weekday every week.

The 2nd part of the role is to be part of our retail shop floor team, which will require weekend work, varying between occasional and regular depending on the time of year.

This role is a great opportunity for someone that wants to work with an established company that has been designing and producing for 14 years. Would suit a freelance designer who wants a fixed regular role. The position would also be perfect for someone starting in the industry that wants to work within a company that does all aspects in-house and wants to learn everything there is to know about graphic design within a small company. You’ll be working alongside a small dedicated team that works on our website and the design side of the business. Ideal for someone looking for a varied design role that incorporates retail and design, is a good all-rounder that loves variation. The successful applicant would be someone who thrives at working independently (at times), must have a good work ethic that can be self managed and a can do attitude!

There is a definite room to grow within the role and take on more responsibility over time and by showing initiative.

Retail Customer Service Role

We are also looking to fill a second position, with a new member for our customer service team!

Ripley Reversible Dresses!

Our tried and true Ripley Reversible dress is a crowd pleaser and an old favourite with all the made590 ladies. She is cute, feminine, but structured too and we are sure you will love wearing her all year round.

Every Day Ripley Reversible Dress in Summer Stripe


The Ripley dress is a wonderful soft jersey dress with lots of stretch and just enough structure to flatter all shapes and sizes. We love the neckline, which on one side of the dress is a scoop neck, and if you spin the dress around is a V neck, so you can wear both looks easily and with confidence. The Ripley is great in the heat of summer, the soft cotton jersey we use for the dress is lovely and cool to wear. The cut of the skirt on the Ripley dress is a flared skirt, similar to a semi circle, which has excellent panels that flare out and give the skirt an interesting cut, especially in the striped fabrics. The Ripley dress has a soft bound neckline which is great to wear casually, but she can also be dressed up perfectly with some fun accessories like a belt, statement earrings or a sparkly necklace. We love the extended sleeve of the Ripley which sits at a point like a cap sleeve and creates a flattering angle on the arm. We love the softness of the cotton jersey which always looks good out of the wash and will be low care for day to day wear. She really is the most perfect jersey dress, with much more cute detailing than most, and an interesting panelled skirt which sits perfectly over your hips, even with layers.

Every Day Ripley Reversible Dress in Black

Ripley works perfectly all year round as she is a style that you can layer with a long sleeve top underneath, or with a cardigan over the top. She also works well with stockings in winter, and she has the perfect double neckline options for work. Wear her one day with a V-neck and as a scoop neck later in the week. Throw on a stripe version for weekend wear, and accessorise with a metallic or brightly coloured belt. She looks fabulous with a jacket for work, or a coloured cardigan over stripes always hits the mark for a dressy casual look. We love the length of the Ripley as she is not too short to wear on her own, sitting at your knee (on most heights) and meaning she is completely appropriate for any occasion. We love her worn as-is, pin a little brooch on and wear some cute sandals, or dress her up with a pair of clogs and a leather belt. Ripley is so versatile you will surely be in love after the first wear!

Every Day Ripley Reversible Dress in Nautical Stripe


Ripley is available in sizes XS (8), S (10), M (12), L (14), XL (16) and this round has three different colors/patterns.

Our new stock: Rizzo Top + Rizzo Dress

Our staff favourite is back in stock this summer – the Rizzo top! We love Rizzo here because she reminds us of one our favourite eras – the 50’s! With her slash, high neckline she’s the perfect shape to match back with one of your favourite printed skirts 0r your favourite denim jeans or skirt.

She comes in a lovely stretch cotton/lycra making her super comfy to wear whilst also being very flattering!

Rizzo is unique in that you can also pull down the neckline to create more of a cowl neck shape on days when you don’t want it as high. She’s a versatile piece to wear both in the summer + winter months as the sleeveless feature is great for those very hot days, along with the neckline which creates almost a tuxedo look, perfect for those cooler days as it keeps your neck warm without having to wear a scarf. She’s a great one to wear to work in the darker colours and a great weekend option in the sky blue and red + white stripe!



And because we love the Rizzo THAT much we decided to create a dress version for those who love a odd, classic basic without having to worry about how to co-ordinate two pieces! The Rizzo dress is also apart of our Every Day range as she’s perfect for work + play. The skirt on this drapes beautifully and is perfect for those that are looking for a little bit of length as sits on or below the knee – depending on how tall you are! She’s a great one to team back with one of our belts – which are handmade in Greece – as this really highlights and cinches in the waist area. Another staple item perfect for the summer heat in it’s light weight fabric, but also a good piece for layering with stockings, boots and a cardigan in the cooler months.


Both the Rizzo Top + Rizzo dress are available Instore and Online now.

Our shop is open all weekend, so pop in for a visit : )

Happy Friday!
